Thank you to everyone who attended our Sixth Annual Art Market this November. This year we raised $13,135 to benefit the museum! Your generosity will help to create exhibitions and programs at the International Quilt Museum.

Additional thanks to those who generously donated objects for the Friends Table at our Sixth Annual Art Market. Last week, we donated the remaining materials to Totonga Bomoi. A Congolese phrase for "build our future," this organization headquartered here in Lincoln teaches women to sew and helps them sell their bags, bow ties and head wraps. The remaining sewing machines, patterns, books and fabrics went to help in that effort.

Project Pincushion

Project Pincushion

Friends of the International Quilt Museum continue to sponsor PROJECT PINCUSHION, a way for quilters from all over the world to support the IQM. For this continuing project, people have the opportunity to make pincushions of any size, shape, or color using any form of needlework: sewing, crochet, knitting, cross stitch, needlepoint. The pincushions are being sold in the IQM gift shop and at special museum events, with proceeds going directly toward future exhibits at the IQM.

Individuals as well as members of guilds or bees can continue to support the IQM by making and sending your pincushions to:

International Quilt Museum
1523 N 33rd St.
Lincoln, NE 68503

Please include your name, address, and email address with each pincushion. Questions should be directed to project chairperson, Donna di Natale at [email protected]
